I liked the behind the scene stories of the recording and of the band's history that were interspersed between the musical numbers. And the three bonus songs are a lot of fun.
Bottom line; if you love Kiko, you will love this album.
I'm not sure what the negative reviewer is talking about. The BD is well produced, the editing is very watchable with no quick cuts, shaky cam or ultra close-ups as is fashionable these days. The DTS 5.1 mix is a very good, balanced mix that sounds great on my system. The video is good. Maybe not reference quality but good enough.
The album is preformed in it's entirety and Los Lobos does an outstanding job recreating the studio album on stage. The songs are very true to the originals while some get stretched out a bit and extended. David Hidalgo has been one of my favorite guitarists for some time and this concert does nothing to change that image for me. He really lays it down in several songs and continues to impress. Really, the whole band does an excellent job. Cougar Estrada on the drums is outstanding.
The show can be viewed as the concert only or the concert with interviews in between the songs. I choose to watch the interviews on the first viewing and found them interesting and insightful.
The DVD gives you the option of playing an entire presentation of songs from the show with short interview segments interspersed, or if you've heard the interviews enough, or don't want talking to slow the pace, then you opt to hear the concert numbers only. Nice feature. Also, really nice to see/hear the acoustic bonus tracks, done with the aid of trad Mexican players. KIKO Live is an excellent collection of material played by great musicians with passion and precision, the same guys (for the most part) who played this music 14 years before this 2006 re-visit.
In short, I believe any fan of good rock'n'roll will want to see this, but if you are a Los Lobos fan, you definitely do not want to miss it. Incidentally, I saw them a few nights before this was filmed, but the performance captured here (in San Diego, I believe) is even better than what I was lucky enough to see.
